The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog. …asdfghijk…asdffdsa….asdffdsa….yuiop…yuiop…. “Take off ten points for each error.” The quick brown fox… AsDfGhJkL…74 wpm take off 20 for two typos. That’s not fair! Seventy-seven wpm minus 30 for three errors.
Typing stress began to wear on me as revealed in a dream. (I slept with my four-year-old sister, Karen.)
It was a killer typewriter choking me! The frame at the keyboard edge was pressing across my throat. I couldn’t breath. Gasping for breath, I awoke. Karen’s arm was across my throat. Not a killer typewriter; just a loving sister.
A true story important in my life for the lesson that typing class taught me. “Slow down and do it right first time.”

The little bay plans next play
Requiring skilled feet.
Okay, horse lovers. This might not be a bay. Mane doesn’t look very black but what do I know about horses! I sat on one one time. It lifted a leg because of flies. I cried in fright. Daddy took me off and I’ve never been back on. Silly me, missed a lot. If you know, tell me in the comments.

More Me Thinking About Heaven. here I’m sharing a comment from Faye and my answer (in red). Then more heart thoughts. I’m not speaking theology. Just testimony of a love relationship with Jesus.
Love this Oneta. And yes, I think I could find the scripture to back up pretty much everything…well maybe not the cloud part :).
Stay safe Oneta! My kids keep making sure I don’t go out much either! 62 has never felt so old…..
I’m in like “You’re not going out” kind of in. 😀
I tried not to do damage to the scriptures about heaven. Tried not to over imagine but – dare I tell you – I have some of those also. Would I dare say I fancy there might be “earth” museums where the most glorious artifacts from earth are kept? Oh, sometimes I look at the beauty in music, art, and craftsmanship and wonder if God might let them escape the refining of this old earth and we can observe and remember. I wonder if Handel’s Messiah might be there.
See how I can imagine things that I didn’t include on my thoughts. They are my thoughts – not scripture. And oh how I want to climb a tree and look into an eagles nest….
Still it is beyond what I can think how wonderful heaven is. And I sit here in my corner imaging being at Jesus feet – “Sitting at your feet, sitting at your feet, that is where my joy is complete, sitting at you feet.” *
And in all my imagination the scripture says I come up short with how wonderful it will be.
After having been old for many years now, it is hard to imagine walking without a limp, hearing the bird calls, seeing the tiniest of little seeds on my grand child’s hand, singing out a full volume “There is Going to be a Meeting Over There,” doing a pirouette, learning to play a violin with limber fingers, never again having a broken heart – physically or emotionally.
Oh, but I am insured in scripture that that will be true.
The Lord invites us to “Come now, let us reason together….though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be white as snow…” Marvelous. No more adversary to accuse me! Standing face to face with Jesus – no, even in all my imagination, I cannot image that. I can only see me throwing myself at his feet. One of the first things I will see will be no more dust on them. But there are scars…..
*(I cannot find the composer of this chorus.)
I’ve peeked through this door before,
It’s a land where children dwell.
I was not allowed to enter
I was not born alive and well.
I never learned to eat or walk
Never heard my mother talk.
I guess they thought I was not worth
My survival on the earth.

Help! Sometimes I think
my gray matter is shrinking!
My answer: “Don’t think!”
